Exercisers, Flexibility, Lower Limb
Definition : Flexibility exercisers designed to improve the range of motion (i.e., flexibility) around a joint by supporting and/or positioning the user, making it possible to stretch the muscles in the lower limbs. These exercisers are usually portable devices with handlebars or stand-alone exercise workstations. Lower-limb flexibility exercisers are intended to improve the flexibility of the muscles in the lower limbs; they can also increase muscle (e.g., quadriceps, gluteus, hamstring, calves) strength and improve balance and stability. Dedicated flexibility exercisers, such as a quadriceps board, and a slant board, are available for stretching the lower limbs.
